One Main Difference of These Two Covenants

John Owen on an important distinction between the old and new covenants:
This then is one main difference of these two covenants—that the Lord did in the old only require the condition; now, in the new, he will also effect it in all the federates, to whom this covenant is extended.
—John Owen, The Death of Death in the Death of Christ, in the Works of John Owen, ed. W. H. Gould, 16 vols. (Edinburgh: The Banner of Truth Trust, 1976), 10:237.
